The Energy Hog made at stop at Sunrise River Elementary School in North Branch and participated in a skit with 4th grade classrooms about saving energy.

The Energy Hog is not fond of saving energy but the students caught onto his game and let him know he was not welcome.
This is one of the many educational activities made available through participation in the Schools for Energy Efficiency program.
North Branch Area Public Schools has avoided spending over $330,000 since beginning the program in February 2009.
